I will be graduating from art school in about 3 1/2 months. My final exam will be to host an art exhibit. I have an idea of what it will look like, but just for fun I decided to test-hang my 3 newest paintings. The same picture can look great or terrible just by how … Continue reading A Test-Exhibit
I am excited to say that "Devil's Canyon" and "Water Power Plant" are done! It didn't take much, but the last bits of painting take everything to the next level. I think both pictures are done, if anything I might add a little refinement to the lighting in "Water Power Plant". And here's are … Continue reading “Devil’s Canyon” and “Water Power Plant” done!
I went shopping this morning at an art supply store in Karlsruhe. Among other things I got new oil paint and some stuff for the unicorn helmets. In the end my bag was full and my wallet was not...

She had previously been criticized by our professor for having little work and for the work being too … Continue reading Updates on Art!
A few days ago I had posted that the painting "Shadow under a Bridge" was finished. But when I went to show it to my professor, he suggested to change the sky and the hills. I did what he suggested and like the result. It was good before, but now it's even better! As for … Continue reading Updates: Paintings and Costumes!
Yesterday I began working on the next painting. It's going to be a remake of my painting "Water Power Plant" (2014, Acrylic on Paper). This time it's about twice as big (50cm x 124 cm / 1' 8''x 4' 2'') and it will be done in oil. I am also trying out a different canvas … Continue reading A new (old) Picture!
